Mates4Mates Diabetes Management Program
Are you a veteran or family member who wants to improve the way you manage your diabetes condition?
Then the Diabetes Management Program may be for you.
What is the Diabetes Management Program?
Newly developed by Mates4Mates, the Diabetes Management Program is designed by our exercise physiologists to help veterans increase their confidence to self-manage their diabetes with health interventions, while building their strength and fitness to improve their blood glucose control.
The group program will provide an opportunity for participants to become better educated on diabetes comorbidities while also learning behaviour change strategies.
The Diabetes Management Program will be offered at both the Brisbane and Townsville Family Recovery Centres.
An initial consultation will take place prior to the program, with a final consultation to take place after the program is completed.
This program will require participants to have a DVA or Medicare referral.
This group program will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting 2 May to 8 June 2023, from 1:00pm to 2:00pm.
The program will be held at both the Brisbane Family Recovery Centre and Townsville Family Recovery Centre. You will be asked to select which location you’re wishing to attend within the below expression of interest form.
Submit your expression of interest below.
Expressions of interest close Monday, 3 April 2023, however, expressions of interest may close sooner if a large volume of applications are received. It is therefore recommended that expressions of interest are submitted as soon as possible.
Places in the program are dependent on meeting the selection criteria. Please note submitting an expression of interest does not automatically qualify an applicant for the next step in the selection process for this program.
Places in the program are available to veterans and family members registered with Mates4Mates.
